ED RUSCHA "BREWS" SCREENPRINT, 1970
This work is from one of Ed Ruscha's (b. 1937) most iconic print series.
Created in 1970 the full suite of screenprints in entitled: "News, Mews, Pews, Brews, Stews, Dues"
Classic Ruscha, the artist plays with language and typography in a way that destabilizes the parameters of pop, conceptual art and minimalism.
Ruscha had been dedicated to printmaking since the beginning of his art studies in the late 1950's. Lithographic editions has been a central part of his practice since.
Arguably the most famous Californian artist, Los Angeles has a profound influence on Ruscha's formal interests, palette and overall aesthetic.
This work is in the permanent collection of the Tate (London), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), MoMA (New York), LACMA (Los Angeles) to mention a few.
